Not What Advertised.
This vac does not reduce the volume of leaf litter! Also, it is a hassle to have to turn off and restart the motor when emptying the bag. Unit is very hard to start when cold. I am very disappointed in this distributor's advise and recommendations. This purchase is a disaster and I need to sell this thing. I could do better raking the leaves into large sheets of burlap.

Peter,
The Billy Goat units unfortunately do not reduce the debris significantly as they are designed more for general clean up rather than reduction or mulching capabilities. I am sorry to hear you are disappointed with the purchase of this unit and any assistance provided to you was not helpful. I appreciate you taking the time to write this review and I will notify the manufacturer of the issues you experienced as well.

Billy Goat Leaf Vacuum
I opened the box, read the manual, assembled the handle & bag assembly, pulled the handle and it started 1st pull (way to go Honda). It sucked up large Sycamore leaves with no problem! I look forward to using it again this weekend. Serious commercial quality.

Very happy with the Billy Goat MV650. The vacuum does require a small amount of assembly. Took approximately 30 Minutes to secure the leaf chute assembly to the vacuum and assemble the collection bag to the frame.

I purchased the vacuum with the intentions of using it on the lawn, it performs beyond my expectations sucking up leaves faster than you can rake. I have also used the vac in the garage with the felt bag accessory ($100.00) to suck up dry oily dry sweep from the garage floor. Very... more

Good Unit
This is my 2nd Billy Goat. The first had a felt bag and was really difficult/inefficient to unload. What I like best about this one is the top fill design. It's pretty straight forward to dump one load into one paper debris bag. I bought a little wonder bag stand that holds the paper bag up.

I hardly ever use the self propel feature as it rolls easy enough. Starting it requires a vigorous pull on the rope due to the sheer weight of the impeller I guess. It feels like hand propping an... more

Know What You Are Getting!
This website sales girl and its descriptions are inconsistent with regards to the vacuum's ability to reduce volumes of leaves. It DOES NOT chop up leaves at all. It only compresses them a bit. You will be emptying the bag every few minutes. You must stop and restart the motor every time.

Also, this motor is very hard to start when cold. 20 pulls is the norm. I am not very happy with this vac. The six blades description doesn't do anything for volume reduction.

For mulching and volume... more

Peter,
I apologize for the inconsistent information you have received. The Billy Goat units are not designed to mulch necessarily. They will reduce the volume of debris to an extent however. These units are designed more for a quick clean up of your yard/property for easy collection and dumping of the debris.

I appreciate you taking the time to write a review on this product. Thank you and happy holidays.
